Planning for youth ministry

“Pastoral planning requires prayer, leadership, foresight, and discipline regarding the future direction of the parish... It requires thinking through and doing things in a prayerful way, while retaining a degree of flexibility. In the end, it is always important to remember that a plan is a guide and that the Holy Spirit is the agent of the discipleship process.” 

– USCCB, Living as Missionary Disciples
